Beneath the Mask: Understanding performances of gendered identities as masquerade
A seminar by Julia Scott, hosted by the Friends of the Auckland Art Gallery.
Within visual art, discussions of gendered masquerades are usually confined to performances undertaken by women. Julia Scott explores the implications of a female masquerade assumed by a male artist with the art of Yasumasa Morimura. Moving outside the traditional boundaries of identity, Morimura illustrates the slippages within these spaces of representation.
